Abstract:

"Can we design a sustainable future? ecoDesign: The Sourcebook assures us that we can - and with style. Featuring hundreds of common consumer items that are recycled, recyclable, renewable, and energy efficient, ecoDesign shows that ecologically oriented products can be innovative, attractive, and consumer-friendly." "With illustrations and detailed entries, ecoDesign showcases a wide spectrum of objects - from furniture to fashion, cars to cosmetics, pencils to pedal-driven lawn-mowers - that have been designed with the earth's future in mind. Some are already familiar design classics, while others have been tracked down in obscure places and small studios. Entries explain the green attributes of each product, including construction from post-consumer materials, recyclability, energy efficiency, and more. An extensive reference section details manufacturers, design studios, and green organizations, along with providing a checklist of earth-friendly design strategies and a glossary of terms." "The 21st century requires us to make more environmentally responsible choices. ecoDesign: The Sourcebook is the essential resource for finding the products, designers, and manufacturers that are leading the way to the green future without sacrificing style."--Jacket.
